MAT Tumbling and Trampoline will be hosting an USTA/AAU sanctioned Power tumbling and trampoline meet. The event will be entitled: "MAT Tumbling and Trampoline welcomes you to a Holiday Hoorah."
Nearly 500 events will be held on Saturday's Trampoline and Double-Mini meet and close to 575 athletes will be competing in Sunday's Power Tumbling invitational.
This event will be held at the Marshalltown Community College on Saturday and Sunday. Events will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end around 4:30 p.m.
These power tumblers and trampolinists come from all across the state and include more than eighty from the MAT Tumbling and Trampoline team. This will be the final meet of the season for the MAT tumbling and trampoline team before heading into the USAT Championships next weekend. The MAT Tumbling/Trampoline club tends to attract a large number of participants for several reasons.
One of the main reasons is that MAT has been hosting very well organized meets for more than 17 years and has an outstanding reputation at both the state and national level. The MAT club has great support from its numerous MAT families, friends and athletes, all of whom work very hard to make our events very well organized and the best in the state of Iowa.
Power Tumbling and Olympic Trampoline is continuing to grow in popularity with Trampoline being an Olympic sport and Power tumbling being an international sport. Tumblers range from ages 2-20, and include many different levels of difficulty from beginner to elite. Tumbling and Trampoline is an individualized sport; every boy or girl of any size, shape and ability can tumble or bounce. However tumbling/trampoline can also be a team sport.
Sportsmanship, positive self-esteem and strong friendships are some of the great ingredients to make a team complete. Each student participating receives a trophy and/or medal regardless of place, this way each student is rewarded for his/her effort.
